'''Freelance writers can earn more money from home'''
-
There is a need for developing standard classes for blog posts (i.e. a microformat!).
 
-
This page serves to document the current list of individual blog post schemas, formats, and efforts as background for the design of a simple blog post MicroFormat.

  I am a freelance writer, I have more than 2 years experience in freelance work. I have more than 10 years work experience in various companies and various sections. But now a day overall economy is very low, so two years back I decided to start with freelance work.
 +
   
 +
I am doing work for my existing clients as well as new clients and I am trying to keep them very happy with me so that only I can maintain my relationship. I am getting clients and projects from freelance website like www.net4manpower.com. I am one of the power members in this site. I won more than 55 projects from this site. When I started my freelance career that time I don’t know about any websites and I confused about how to get the projects? How to contact the job providers? That time my friend Mr.Johnsmith Thakal  help me , he only tell about this website and tell me  don’t want to pay any amount for registration and bid, Just free service and also secure payment.

First I am not have 100% hope in this site, after that I thought let we try, so I will join free with this site and bid the projects, slowly I won the projects and clients. Now many clients from www.net4manpower.com are my life long customers and still now I will not worry about the payment. They are providing me 100% payment security. But when I see this site first, I am not getting hope or confidence this site, because there design is simple and not good look. But there service is very good.

    I’m join with project outsourcing website and submitted my profile and portfolio first, because many freelancers doing this mistake that is they are joined with freelance sites but they will not provide their overall details. But in this kind of freelance website all the clients must see the portfolio and profile first after that only they will select you. Normally I ‘m quoting affordable cost for n4mp clients, but I will not provide very cheap rate, according to my work I will offer good price. I am investing 90$ per month subscription and earn more than 500$ per month, so it is very helpful for me.

Many people they are interested in home based works but they are very lazy to submit the bid. But in my experience I am not waiting for more time for projects reply. I will get immediate response from net4manpower clients and also other freelance site.

Blogger is one the earliest, best known and probably most widely used blogging platform. Blogger was bought by [http://www.google.com Google] in February of 2003. Blogger allows users to create and edit their own templates and also provides a large number of (more or less) attractive templates from which the user can select. Unfortunately, you must log into a blogger account to see the template selection.
 
-
Here are several Blogger templates, randomly selected from the presets. More recent templates seem to be converging on a vocabulary for identifying parts of posts. This may because they share an evolutionary history from a common template. I've included three examples here:

    Freelancers should be creating a virtual portfolio that is client list and samples, it is very useful to market your service to client nationally and internationally. Many free services providers are there in online to create the portfolio, so you can use this for your market.

MovableType is a perl-based blogging platform. Note that the MT is old and widely deployed and there are very many different variants on the templates in the wild.
+
-
 
+
-
The standard template for the weblog's main page (the "[http://www.sixapart.com/movabletype/default_templates#main_index main index]") has the following structure:
+
-
 
+
-
<pre><nowiki>

<h2>DATE HEADER</h2>

+
-
<p class="posted">Posted by AUTHOR at DATE</p>
+
-
</div>
+
-
</nowiki></pre>
+
-
 
+
-
==== Key Class Names ====
+
-
 
+
-
* "content" can enclose an individual entry or all entries, depending on the context
+
-
* "h2" encloses the post date (literally: the time is not included)
+
-
* "h3" encloses the title
+
-
* there is no standard enclosure for all the content
+
-
* there is no clear identification of "here's all the entries"
+
-
* there is no clear identification of the post's author
+
-
* the permalink is not necessarily on the page anywhere
+
-
 
+
-
==== Template Concepts ====
+
-
* all posts
+
-
* an individual post
+
-
* post title
+
-
* post author
+
-
* post posting time
+
-
* post content, which includes the next two

Typepad is a MovableType hosting service. It provides a list of [http://help.typepad.com/tags/default_templates.html default templates] and [ "template modules"] from which users can construct or modify their own templates. Looking at several Typepad blogs, most or all of them following the nomenclature and struct defined by these templates.
+
-
 
+
-
The standard structure is as follows:
+
-
 
+
-
<pre><nowiki>

<div id="container">

+
-
  POST FOOTER
+
-
</p>
+
-
</div>
+
-
</nowiki></pre>
+
-
 
+
-
I cannot seem to track down in the templates where the POST FOOTER is defined. However, we can see the results from a [http://www.bluedogbob.com/ sample blog]:

+
-
<pre><nowiki>

==== Key Class Names ====
+
-
* "entry" encloses all elements within an entry

-
* "entry-content" contains all the entry text, plus additional text saying "here's more"

WordPress is a popular GPLed blogging system based on PHP and MySQL. WordPress calls their templates "themes" -- [http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/ more information]. Wordpress does not have a standardized set of class names for identifying parts of the weblog content. I've included a number of examples of what is seen in the wild (move to [[http://microformats.org/wiki/blog-post-examples examples]]?)

== Journal Formats ==
+
-
Before blogs there were journals.  Many journals were kept merely on people's computers and not necessarily published. 
+
-
 
+
-
=== VJOURNAL ===
+
-
 
+
-
RFC2445 (iCalendar) defines the VJOURNAL object for storing journal entries which are essentially the same as blog posts.  Note that [[hcalendar|hCalendar]] by virtue of referencing all of RFC 2445, could be said to define VJOURNAL class names.
+
-
 
+
-
The basic structure of a series of VJOURNAL entries:

Here's some analysis of parts of VJOURNAL which may be of interest to hAtom work. Items in bold are considered of interest to hAtom, others can be discarded without further discussion, because they're either machine-only or just don't fit into the weblog use-case.
+
-
 
+
-
* '''vjournal'''
+
-
** class - N/A to web, perhaps for archive format
+
-
** created - for machines only
+
-
** '''description''' - "full text"
+
-
** dtstart - when the entry is about - doesn't fit in weblog use case
+
-
** '''dtstamp''' - user creation time
+
-
** last-mod - machine use only (for the specific host's copy, not the same as 'updated')
+
-
** organizer - who organized the meeting (VJOURNAL's use case includes meeting notes)
+
-
** recurid - machine only
+
-
** seq - machine only
+
-
** status - N/A to WWW, consider for archive
+
-
** '''summary''' - "title"
+
-
** '''UID''' - "id/permalink"
+
-
** '''URL''' - "link"
+
-
** '''attach''' - "enclosure"
+
-
** attendee - who attended the meeting (think meeting notes)
+
-
** '''categories''' - "tags"
+
-
** comment - comments about the journal
+
-
** contact - author???

== Syndication Feed Formats ==
+
-
All of the blogging tools above can produce syndication feeds from the same underlying content and thus prossibly worth discussing here.
+
-
 
+
-
[http://www.downes.ca/ Stephen Downes] postulates a [http://microformats.org/discuss/mail/microformats-discuss/2005-August/000670.html syndication/weblog equivalency rule], that RSS + XSLT = XHTML and XHTML + XSLT = RSS. In practice, this may not be exactly true due to syndication feeds often only provide summaries of the entry text and the definition of certain elements of syndications feeds may have ambiguous meaning or interpretation.

A note about Atom types
+
-
 
+
-
* [http://www.atomenabled.org/developers/syndication/#person person] - describes a person, corporation, or similar entity
+
-
* [http://www.atomenabled.org/developers/syndication/#text text] - contains human-readable text; @text defines the encoding of the text itself: "text" (default), "html", "xhtml"
+
-
* [http://www.atomenabled.org/developers/syndication/#link link] - is patterned after html's [http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/struct/links.html#h-12.3 link element]; @href is required; @rel, @type, @hreflang, @title, and @length are optional.
+
-
* published and updated are datetimes
+
-
 
+

== Discussion Forum / Bulletin Board Formats ==
+
-
 
+
-
Discussion forum posts are similar to blog posts, so may be relevant.  Due to the complexity of table-based layouts, much of the mark-up in the following examples has been stripped.  The mark-up and analysis also excludes controls (such as reply buttons).

Moodle is an open source course management system used in education.  It includes a discussion forum.  The forum does not support templating.

Freelance writers can earn more money from home


== Freelance writing and their experience ==


 I am a freelance writer, I have more than 2 years experience in freelance work. I have more than 10 years work experience in various companies and various sections. But now a day overall economy is very low, so two years back I decided to start with freelance work.
   

I am doing work for my existing clients as well as new clients and I am trying to keep them very happy with me so that only I can maintain my relationship. I am getting clients and projects from freelance website like www.net4manpower.com. I am one of the power members in this site. I won more than 55 projects from this site. When I started my freelance career that time I don’t know about any websites and I confused about how to get the projects? How to contact the job providers? That time my friend Mr.Johnsmith Thakal help me , he only tell about this website and tell me don’t want to pay any amount for registration and bid, Just free service and also secure payment.

First I am not have 100% hope in this site, after that I thought let we try, so I will join free with this site and bid the projects, slowly I won the projects and clients. Now many clients from www.net4manpower.com are my life long customers and still now I will not worry about the payment. They are providing me 100% payment security. But when I see this site first, I am not getting hope or confidence this site, because there design is simple and not good look. But there service is very good.

Every freelancer should be satisfying your clients then only you can get more work from us.


Freelance project biding

    I’m join with project outsourcing website and submitted my profile and portfolio first, because many freelancers doing this mistake that is they are joined with freelance sites but they will not provide their overall details. But in this kind of freelance website all the clients must see the portfolio and profile first after that only they will select you. Normally I ‘m quoting affordable cost for n4mp clients, but I will not provide very cheap rate, according to my work I will offer good price. I am investing 90$ per month subscription and earn more than 500$ per month, so it is very helpful for me.

Many people they are interested in home based works but they are very lazy to submit the bid. But in my experience I am not waiting for more time for projects reply. I will get immediate response from net4manpower clients and also other freelance site.


Create online portfolio

   Freelancers should be creating a virtual portfolio that is client list and samples, it is very useful to market your service to client nationally and internationally. Many free services providers are there in online to create the portfolio, so you can use this for your market.

You don't have to look hard to find freelance writing jobs; you just have to "look smart!" Make this your year to achieve your writing goals and become a published creator!!!!

All the best.
